Never heard of Healthy Vegan Fridays before? It’s an amazing weekly linkup for bloggers to share their delicious and healthy vegan food. This linkup is not restricted to recipes though – feel free to share your posts on exercise & fitness, plant-based health & wellness,  and/or vegan travel, restaurant and cookbook reviews.

Don’t have a blog? Don’t worry! You can come and see what others have shared and find some tasty food to try!

Let’s check out some of our favs from last week.

Moroccan Red Lentil Soup from Sandi’s Allergy Free Recipes:

With the cooler, rainy weather we’re getting, I’m looking for more soups to enjoy to warm up. The healing power of turmeric in this soup is sure to help heal anything that ails. Sounds like a bowl of comfort.

Cocoa and Paprika Split Peas from Bite-Sized Thoughts:

Speaking of lentils! Though I’ve made molé chili in the past, cocoa is not something I would have thought to add to my split peas. Sounds simply delicious and what a creative way of making another meal with leftover lentils.

Mostly Raw Red Quinoa & Cabbage Salad from Beautifully Bohemian:

First of all – isn’t this the prettiest salad? I mean, her nails even match the gorgeous purple cabbage! Love it! Cooking the quinoa in vegetable broth would flavour up this salad nicely and I love the idea of hemp seeds as part of the dressing giving it a bit of a crunch.

Balsamic Beet Pasta from A Whisk and Two Wands:

I’ll admit that I”m not actually a huge beet person. But I LOOOOOVVVE pasta. Sneaking beets into my pasta will definitely be a good way to get some in. They make an interesting “pasta” sauce. This may actually be our Valentine’s Day dinner <3

This week, Mary Ellen is sharing her Vegan Buffalo Chicken Rice Skillet:

Holy moly, right!? This looks insanely delicious. I can’t wait to try it out. I may have to skip the hot sauce as I’m a complete wuss (which may actually defeat the whole “buffalo” flavouring haha), but I’ll have it on the side for Terry who likes things spicy. Yum!

And I’m sharing my Chocolate Heart Lava Cakes:

Ok… so they didn’t quite turn out lava-y like I had envisioned, but what’s not to like about a chocolate cupcake filled with more chocolate????

We’d love it if you link up and bring some friends to the party! We’ll be pinning and sharing your tasty treats on social media!

  1. Drooling over your Chocolate Lava Cake! I might have to whip that up this weekend for dessert after our big dinner, hubby is making fresh pasta and I’m trying to take over the sourdough all by myself to see if I can do it so I can make it while he’s in Cali and so I can make some to send with the girls before I head down there.
    Thank you for including my Beet Pasta and if you make it I’d love to hear what you think!

    1. Thanks Sarah! Let me know if you try it and if you like it =) Maybe you can give me some baking pointers – it’s definitely something you are great at!
      Are you headed up to Cali again?? I wonder if we can try to meet up this time =)

  2. Hi Kimmy,
    Happy Friday! I always look forward to Healthy Vegan Fridays. I love making hot soups on cold winter days. I shared my favorite Butternut Squash Soup today. Have a great weekend.

    1. It’s been rainy & dreary here, so soup sounds wonderful. I will be checking out your soup – I even have a lovely looking butternut squash sitting on my counter just waiting to be used =)
